I became a member of the Florida Bar in 1993 over 26 years ago. I have been concentrating my practice on Family law for over 14 years. I am a Florida Supreme Court Family Mediator and a Guardian Ad Litem. I am a former prosecutor, and served as an Assistant State Attorney for over 7 years. I also served as Assistant Staff Counsel for the Florida Bar in the department for lawyer discipline.
I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida. My dad is a Prosthodontist, and my mom has her own jewelry business. Most of the jewelry I wear was made by my mother. My parents are still working at age 75, and they have been married for over 55 years. I attended North Shore High School (public school), where I was on the swim team, a member of the chorus, and a cheerleader. Coming from a family of GATORS, I attended the University of Florida, and majored in Real Estate and Urban Development. I actually started my legal career as a legal secretary in a Real Estate Law firm. I attended law school at the University of Miami School of Law. I met my husband through a mutual law school friend, and we have been married since May 5, 1996. We have two amazing daughters, who are both following their dreams to become professional dancers. Dani is graduating this year from University of Florida with a BFA degree in Dance, and a BS degree in Digital Arts and Science. Sami is attending FSU and she is working toward a BFA degree in Dance. Yes, we have a house divided! Thanksgiving weekend is always interesting. But, I have really enjoyed supporting both Florida schools. Both my girls attended Blake High School for the Arts, and Progress Village Middle Magnet School for the Arts. I was very involved with my children's after schooll activities and school programs, and felt it was one of the best decisions I made sending them to magnet schools. These schools helped shaped them into incredibly talented and accomplished young adults.
I started my career as an Assistant State Attorney. It was my childhood dream to be a prosecutor, and I really enjoyed that position. I prosecuted cases from misdemeanors to sex crimes. As a prosecutor, I not only developed litigation skills, but I also learned to work with families who were faced with traumatic situations. This experience gave me a solid background to become a family law attorney. I have primarily represented family law clients since 2006. My ability to negotiate and write effectively have also led to my skills as a Family Mediator and Guardian Ad Litem.
